Several services had been halted since March due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We will continue to slowly reopen our doors and expand our service options,” Tony Guerrera, deputy commission of the DMV, said in a statement. “Safety remains our primary focus.”

The DMV started opening on June 23.

On that date, the DMV started working with driving schools to work through a backlog of tests and scheduled nearly 1,000 road tests through June 30, according to the DMV.

DMV Commissioner Sibongile Magubane said in a statement that the pandemic presented several obstacles, which fast-tracked the department’s modernization plans, the beginning of which is the new appointment system.

“Ultimately, we would like move customers from in-line to online,” Magubane said.

Customers who has appointments that were canceled because of the pandemic are encouraged to reschedule their appointment.

The DMV requires appointments for all services.
